It’s that time of the month again! And no… I am not referring to that time of the month (thank God!).
My July Ipsy Subscription Bag came in the mail today! It always feels like Christmas when my subscriptions get delivered. Does anyone else feel that way? Or is it just me?
This month’s bag is one of my least favorites, to say the least, as far as design goes. Maybe it’s just me… But I’m not quite feelin the naked animated egg.
I guess that is my overall compliant with Ipsy, that some of the bags aren’t really reusable. Majority of the time, the bags are considered tossable as they are small and, quite frankly, odd. Every once in a while you find that diamond in the rough… But more often than not, the bags are too small & too funky.
Eyeko London – Skinny Liquid Black Eyeliner in the shade “Pitch Black”
Rating: 3/5 – I personally prefer a brush tip over the felt tip eyeliner. The felt tips are too hard and unforgiving. However, if I was a felt-loving kind of girl, this would be just lovely!
BRTC – Jasmine Waterful Sleeping Pack Mouisturizer
Rating: 4/5 – Moisture has certainly been guaranteed… Well at least for the week that I have used it. Nothing more has changed as far as my skin’s texture, oilyness, acne, or blackheads, but then again, it never gave those promises!
Taste Cosmetics – Amazonian Clay Waterproof Bronzer in the shade “Park Ave Princess”
Rating: 5/5 – I will give this bronzer the benefit of the doubt in my overall scoring, as I have not tested out it’s waterproof abilities but have been pleasantly surprised by the other qualities. If I was a slight bit tanner, this warm shade would be incredible, but sadly… I’m pretty white for summertime in the south! This product is very buttery, with little to no kick-up and is a brownish tan with neutral undertones (which is awesome, because no one should rock the carrot look).
MPrincess – Pressed Shadows in the shade “Biscuit”
Rating: 4/5 – I may be wrong, but I believe this is marketed as a pressed eyeshadow; however, I found more use out of it as a highlighter. I usually go for a natural highlighter, but found a different kind of interest in Biscuit. The tone is white-based with a sheen, so for all my pastey-white girls… this is for you!
Winky Lux – Double Matte Whip in the shade “Angel Food”
Rating: 2/5 – The pro is found within the color payoff. The pigmentation is unreal! However, the cons are the whipping texture & lack of longevity. This will definitely be the product that some will love or that some will hate.
Choice is yours!
